Many of our alumni came out to meet the new members and share their experiences with them about being brothers and students at Rutgers University. This was both a meaningful experience for the new members as well as the alumni.

Then they were surprised by the brothers as they were actually at a surprise mixer. Many new members, alumni, and brothers got to bond and new friendships develop. The new members were definitely surprised! Everyone had so much fun and the new members are excited to continue their initiation semester into Alpha Zeta.

Just like every semester, we held our first installment ritual at the Rutgers Gardens, which is our current philanthropy project. In accordance with the traditions of Alpha Zeta, we welcomed the new members by exposing them to the entire chapter as well as our active Cook Alumni Association. After meeting the entire Cook Chapter Family, the new members were introduced to their big brothers, who would guide them through the pledging process and help them feel welcomed into our organization. At the end, we welcomed with open arms the Omega Class!

Cook Chapter- Applebee's Night

Applebee’s night was a huge success this semester! It took place after the first potential new member meeting and provided good quality time for both the potential new members and the brothers. There was a great turnout of people with about 30 people there, despite the fact that it was late on a weeknight. Brothers who were able to drive were generous by carpooling everyone who wanted to go. Once there, everyone genuinely seemed to have a good time eating good food and meeting one another. Since there was so many of us, it was impossible to get everyone seated together but people made the extra effort to walk around and introduce themselves or sit at other tables for a bit. It proved to be a great night.

By creating different icebreaker games and mixing the new members into groups of brothers, we were able to give both the new members a chance to meet different brothers in order to learn more about what it means to be a part of the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta, while giving the brothers a chance to meet the prospective new members so that they could decide if they wanted to have a little. Overall, the prospective new members felt welcome and fun was had by both the brothers and the prospective new members.

Game night was another event for prospective new members to learn about the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta. Game night strengthened the chapter by allowing for a fun, relaxed time where new members could meet the brothers in a less formal setting during the week. Brothers worked to reserve the room and kindly supplied their own board games or video games for everyone to use for the night. It was a smaller, more intimate event where everyone could hang out and let the potential new members acquainted with the people who make up the chapter.

Florida Chapter's Last Pledge Meeting

Florida Chapter's Last Pledge Meeting

The Florida Chapter had their last pledge meeting this past Tuesday November 4th. It was a bittersweet moment. Pledges finally finished their stressful 7 week process and were successful in fulfilling all of their requirements. It coincidentally was also Founder's Day, so we had a little celebration with cookies, chips, and subs. Each pledge had to complete 5 hours of service, social, and fundraising each. Their service projects varied from working with monkeys in a Monkey Sanctuary to ...

Our members, along with our just newly initiated brothers and sisters, started their Saturday morning by heading out to this road section armed with orange safety vests, garbage bags, and gloves. Walking along the road, we picked up any litter that had been left behind and filled many garbage bags full of trash. ...

All the rambutans were donated by Dr. Custodio who is a retired animal science professor and always of great help to our Chapter. We had three pledges attend and we could see that they are hard workers dedicated to learning something new everyday.
